Words: 930 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: Array

Summary
Father Prior of the Carmelites in Wyoming wanted to expand the cloister by purchasing a large 500 acre plot of land for $8.9 million. His plan to be able to afford the purchase was based primarily on using the cloister’s niche coffee business—Mystic Monk Coffee. Mystic Monk was a success coffee business run by the monks in the cloister. Marketed as a premium coffee brand and sold over the Internet, the coffee drew interest largely by word of mouth.

For this type of customers, Diesel should create a special line of clothing items, different from the one for the primary target customers. For the primary target customers the central piece is the jeans. For the secondary target customers Diesel designers should combine jeans with other clothing items that are best suitable for 25-35 aged customers, that have good jobs and that are present in high social circles. For the secondary target customers the price should be significantly higher than the price for the primary target customers.

Market Audit

The first point that has to be looked into is the health of the company, Colorado Australia. The company is passing through a bad phase and this is not the time for a product launch as generally no new introduction can make money for a period of time after launch. When the company launching the product is itself in a relatively poor condition of finances, then it is less likely to take risks that will be required for the successful development of the new product. Here the situation is likely to be of a new brand in a new market, rather than a totally fresh launch. The company is already exporting substantial quantities and it is possible even the same item is being exported for sale by another organization under a different brand name. It may be possible that expansion of sale of quantities under that arrangement may…… [Read More]

Even public transportation is growing more expensive, given that cash-strapped states are raising fares.

SOT Analysis:

Strengths

Victory offers customizable bikes with great value and power, according to its promotional literature. I

eaknesses

Victory began as an "offshoot" of Polaris Industries, which is mainly known for marketing snowmobiles and ATVs. Amongst the target audience, particularly in the South and areas where snowmobiling is uncommon, it may have little brand recognition.

Opportunities

The economic downturn and demand for more fuel-efficient vehicles could be capitalized upon as a great opportunity for the company -- more individuals are likely to be seeking out motorcycles as a mode of transportation.

Threats

In a recent head-to-head of Harleys and Victories, one trade magazine said that Victory produced the superior model, but Harley had the better-known name: "It comes down to cooler character of the Harley vs. The better handling, more powerful Cross Country. I know…… [Read More]

references and price sensitivities. This information will be invaluable in formulating the right product lines and services, prices and promotions for its anticipated shoppers. Kudler Fine Foods may find that it needs to fine tune its hours of operations, its access to parking or its promotions techniques for the unique community it is trying to serve. For example, a certain community may prefer to sample wine during the evening as opposed to Saturday morning or a community with a large number of working mothers may require later hours of operation than Kudler's current 6:00 closing time.

In summary, every town is a local market that has its own unique demographic characteristics and a different mix of competitors. Likewise, there is no one single voice of the customer. Customer voices are diverse across geographic locations. In consumer markets, there are a variety of different needs. Market research and analysis of demographic, competitive and customer data is necessary to understand all of these differences. While presenting greater upfront investment costs, market research will ultimately lead to greater sales and profits for Kudler Fine Foods.

Telephone surveys are easier to use and can be accomplished faster; however, this kind of interview could lead to high refusal rate due to technical problems and can yield only shallow data due to the short period of interaction between interviewer and respondent. Personal interviews provide more interaction between interviewer and respondent, and can provide better clarification and probing on responses. However, personal interviewers can take too much time, and can result to interview fatigue, which may affect survey results. Mail surveys are easy to administer and cheaper in cost; however, this kind of survey has the highest refusal rate, and results may no longer be relevant due to this time lag. Electronic mail surveys is easiest and fastest to administer; however, they tend to be ignored and considered as spam mail and responses cannot be clarified further since respondents cannot be tracked easily because surveying is in online mode.

These studies can be beneficial in providing direct human responses, and though such data is not appropriate for statistical analysis, it can provide tremendous insight into the feelings of the average consumer and lead to some creative new ideas (Tutor2u). Surveys could also be sent out or even included in product packages to determine tastes and satisfaction levels, and even advertising awareness and response (Tutor2u). The drawback to such research is that both surveys and panels will only return a handful of responses at a time, and tastes may range greatly between individuals and regionally, making it necessary to conduct many panels over all of the regions which it's Popcorn Time!

In the case of researching the development of an entirely new class of
automobiles, where people often don't know what they want until they see
it, I would rely on observation research. These are typically called new
car clinics, where potential new car models are previewed and car companies

Market Analysis and Product Innovation: Facebook Inc.

In an increasingly competitive environment, business organizations must remain innovative. They must deliver offerings that resonate with the ever changing needs of the consumer and the operating environment (Akbar & Tzokas, 2013).

Pharmaceutical industries have to operate in an environment that is highly competitive and subject to a wide variety of internal and external constraints.

Market Analysis of Tiny Houses

Tiny House: Target Market Analysis

The tiny house market for homes "typically between 100 and 500 square" has a wide demographic outreach in terms of its age range: "Millennials, who have limited funds and might not be able to afford a traditional mortgage because they have to pay off college loans; and Baby Boomers, who are retiring and seeking ways to stretch their pension by finding affordable homes" (Hyde n.d.). The concerns of both groups are strikingly similar. Idealistic Millennials embrace the environmental benefits provided by such homes and Baby Boomers are seeking to save money on utilities. However, demographically, the impressive size of the Millennial generation makes this an even more attractive potential target market: "By sheer numbers, the 75 million members of the millennial generation overtook baby boomers last year" (Lee 2016). Slice of Heaven's emphasis on the luxury market of tiny homes would allow both demographics to…… [Read More]

Market Entry Challenges in Asia

Many companies want to move into Asia, but there are market entry challenges that have to be faced there. Still, Asia represents a very important and profitable market for many companies, and it is not unusual for these companies to draw major profits from their overseas operations. EBay, however, has many problems in the Asian markets, and has struggled with these issues in the past (Chan, 2007). In order to understand why this is the case for the company, one must address the 4 Ps (product, place, promotion, and price). By looking at each one of those, a person can get a better idea of why eBay failed in some of the Asian markets and why it performed better in others. In the U.S., eBay is very popular. The same is true for the UK and a few other countries. That does not mean, though,…… [Read More]

With regard to the second article, a Magic Potion?; Wellness drinks from the Economist (2007), the lack of secondary research is so glaring as to make the claims of weight reduction from drinking the new beverage unbelievable. The entire article could have been two sentences, with the first announcing the drink and the second, that the research had not been released. Further, the investment and financial analyst quoted says he does not like the taste, yet is that relevant? It seems as if the data included in the article is to pump up the Coca-Cola stock price and little else. Secondary data as to the size of the market, Coke's relative market share and the fact that Coke is having trouble with the Centre for Science in the Public Interest all underscores how a lack of secondary data can seriously undermine the credibility of any message or article.

Targeted Home Consumer When Selling a Product

Words: 469 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 8290934

Targeted Home Consumer

When selling a product, an organization's sales department has to be extremely careful while trying to consider which best approach to use when selling. Therefore, the sales department finds that it is better for the product to be sold in the commercial market other than using the home customer approach. The commercial market has a significant advantage over the home-consumer selling because many people are likely to purchase the product in an open consumer or commercial market. When taking the product from door to door, many people are not comfortable with the exercise, and there is a general believe that the product maybe fake or of a low quality.

New markets are the upcoming markets that were not in existence before, and they have a greater potential then those that were in existence before. For instance, this market is probably a new institution has been opened like…… [Read More]

Market Failure and Public Policy

Words: 1334 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 67114539

Government intervention can also extend to public goods that cause the private-decision rule to fail in terms of the efficiency rule.

According to Julianle Grand (1991, p. 426), externalities are the focus of market failure, in that they focus on a third party, otherwise uninvolved in the transaction, that is affected by production or consumption. Grand distinguishes between the benefits and costs to such third parties; where the former entails a positive effect to the third party and the latter a negative effect. Markets can then fail when a lower level of activity occurs in the market than is socially efficient, while an overprovision of activity with external costs will also result in greater activity than is efficient.

Grand also mentions increasing returns to scale (Grand, 1991, p. 427), which entails that the average production costs fall with the increase of the production scale. This could lead to market monopolization…… [Read More]
